Successfully Manage Your Remote Team with These Great Tips

Successfully Manage Your Remote Team with These Great Tips


Having a team of productive and motivated employees is crucial when trying to grow a small business. In 2020, most small businesses were thrown a curveball, known as the COVID-19 health crisis. During this pandemic, many businesses had to shut their doors in an attempt to stop the spread of this dangerous disease. A recent study found that nearly 82% of the businesses in the United States used remote workers in 2020. 

If you have recently started to use remote workers, your main goal needs to be keeping these employees productive. The best way to achieve this goal is by working hard to adequately manage your remote team. Below are some things you need to do when trying to have success with a team of remote workers. 

Investing in Cloud-Based Technology is Vital

The main thing remote workers need to be productive is the right information. Since these employees won’t be able to come to your office space and access the content on your business network, you have to find a way to offer this information remotely. This is why investing in cloud-based technology is so important. There are tons of cloud-based document sharing and project management programs on the market. 

With these programs, you can share information, assign tasks and track the progress your remote employees are making. Keeping your new cloud technology functional and safe will be much easier with the help of CrafTech. We can help you implement cloud solutions and help you keep them functional for years to come. 

You Have To Set Clear Expectations

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when hiring new remote employees is assuming they know what is expected of them. In most cases, this assumption will lead to lots of important tasks falling through the cracks. Rather than dealing with the aggravation and productivity problems, this can cause, you need to set clear expectations for remote workers from the outset. 

Providing clarification on the performance goals and expectations you have for remote employees can help you avoid misunderstandings. Fully outlining project goals and milestones will also help you stay on track and deliver results ahead or on schedule. 

Make Communication a Priority

Since you won’t see your remote employees every day, communication can start to become a problem. If you and your team are not communicating properly, it is only a matter of time before serious mistakes start to occur. This is why using the power of technology to communicate with your remote team members is so crucial. 

Tools like video chat software and instant messaging are a must for remote teams. Keeping the lines of communication open with your team can help you keep them loyal and productive. Routinely checking in on remote employees can also help you discover problems early on and address them before any damage is done.
